Taking to the skies in a RAF Tornado in 360 Video- BBC News

Published

on



For nearly 40 years, the supersonic Tornado attack bomber has been at the heart of the RAF’s operations, from the Cold War to current missions over Iraq and Syria.

The jet is due to come out of service next year and as the RAF celebrates its centenary, the Today programme’s Sarah Montague was taken for a flight by Wing Commander James Heeps.

    As 617 Sqn and TTTE ex-groundcrew on the GR1, this is the best video I've ever seen of a flight even though it was a 9 Sqn aircraft 🙂. The interactive camera is excellent. Sadly, I never got a trip in one before I left and even sadder is that they no longer grace our skies. I certainly miss them 😥

    I was in Oman during the 1st gulf war. I remember standing with my dad Seeb and watching 2 tornados take off during the night with a deafening sound and full after burner, it was an amazing sight. The tornado is a marvel of engineering.

In a high-neck black dress with a prominent red skirt, she sang the anthem to the poignant display of US flags instead of the traditional inauguration audience.

US journalist Evan Gershkovich jailed in Russia | BBC News

Published

on



US journalist Evan Gershkovich has been found guilty of spying by a Russian court and sentenced to 16 years in a high-security prison, after a secretive trial labelled a “sham” by his employer, his family and the White House.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reporter was arrested by security services in March 2023 while working as a reporter in the city of Yekaterinburg, about 1,600km (1,000 miles) east of Moscow.

Russia accuses him of working for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), accusations that Gershkovich, the WSJ and the US strongly deny.

He’s the first US journalist to be convicted for espionage in Russia since the Cold War ended more than 30 years ago.

UN top court says Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories is illegal | BBC News

Published

on



The UN’s top court has said Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories is against international law, in a landmark opinion.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said Israel should stop settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza and end its “illegal” occupation of those areas as soon as possible.

The court’s advisory opinion is not legally binding but still carries significant political weight. It marks the first time the ICJ has delivered a position on the legality of the 57-year occupation.

The ICJ, based at The Hague in the Netherlands, has been examining the issue since the beginning of last year, at the request of the UN General Assembly.
